  1. bowiea volubilis

    Bowiea volubilis, also known as the climbing onion or sea onion, is a perennial succulent species that belongs to the Asparagaceae family. Native to Southern Africa, it is primarily known for its unusual appearance featuring a large, mostly above-ground bulb from which sprouts a climbing, vine-like stem. The stem can grow up to 3 meters long and features small green leaves. This plant is often grown for ornamental purposes and is a popular houseplant due to its resilience to neglect and relatively easy care. Despite its common names, it is not actually an onion and is considered toxic if ingested.
